Taoglas antenna soars with Técnico solar boat

 

 

About Técnico

Técnico Solar Boat is a project by engineering students at Instituto Superior Técnico, University of Lisbon, where they design and build boats powered by renewable energy. Each year the team participates in worldwide engineering competitions organized by Solar Sport One and Yacht Club de Monaco, where they regularly get placed in second and first place.

The Challenge

The student team turned to Taoglas for help adding 4G cellular for telematics applications and GPS for tracking the boat’s speed. In the  initial setup, the cellular and GPS systems shared an external antenna:  the Taoglas Olympian MA140, a high-performance combination LTE  and GPS/GLONASS/Galileo screw mount antenna.
